Dark Souls has taught me to let go of things in life that don’t matter to me any more.

Literally, if you lose about 30,000 souls, you think “Well, now I’m screwed, I needed those and I lost them now what? I’ll never be able to progress without them.” You can’t think like this though, you have to think “It’s just souls, they don’t really matter, what was I going to do? Improve my health by 10 points or get 2% extra resistance? Make my weapon do 10 extra damage? It’s not worth thinking about, I’ll keep going”.

And this is how you should approach life.

nothing makes a gamer more nervous than when the game autosaves in a seemingly harmless location

"this is an awfully convenient collection of healing items"

"why is all this ammo here"

"where did all the enemies go"

"This room has rather a lot of wide, open space in it." 

"The music stopped suddenly."

"No, there it is."

"….That’s an awful lot of bass."

"Lots of waist high objects here."

EIGHT NOTE CHORDS? What instrument(s) is this for? An octopus??

Its called the Death Waltz, and was written as a joke but people have attempted it on piano.

Saxes move downstage.

I’ll just leave this here.

I request this to be played at my funeral

That was really fucking awesome.

Sounds like the opening to the best anime ever.

Unity is a lot easier to use that I had anticipated. I had fun mixing 2D and 3D elements for a scene and I’m now playing around getting some platformer stuff together. Shaping up to be a fun little project :)

Puzzle & Dragons — Oh my… I didn’t know it made over $1bn in 2013. Guys, compare it to Ubisoft: Ubisoft made $1.72bn with 9,200 employees.

The amount of ideas, stolen art, and other gaming mechanics taken from other games in the app store is atrocious in this. I can see nothing original here, it makes me angry as a game developer.

well. most (indie) games are clones or samples of other games with new graphics, indie games in particular (i.e. hyper lift drifter). sampling.

i think when someone makes $1bn just like that it is a chance to think about the mechanics for a minute. i gave it a try today. it is not my game type, obviously, but it feels a lot like an advanced pokemon. so, i doubt it is just pickpocketing because the orb combo mechanic is rather rare and that pokemon-like creature nursing make people play it for months for a reason.

what is shocking to me is… that it made $1bn (on mobile).

There are others games that do this nursing-style of gameplay, where it is presented to nursing troops and warriors instead of creatures, but seeing as there are a multitude of games like this I suppose those games are no better.

However, the art is horrible rip offs of other games on the app stores, which makes me cringe the most. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to make new art assets and just a bit more to create something original-looking.

It is hard to find something original on the app stores, which is sad for me because the app store and Google Play store have such potential, as shown in the past, and people find it easier to just clone something for an easy buck.
